Change Ventoy system partition size
#1
I'm using the same usb Key with PC windows XP to 10, Pc Linux, Mac and android 6 to 9.
android 6 can't find my exFat partition, only fat partition be seen. but There some apk to make it detected (paragon exfat/ntfs) and drivers for old windows
The Fat partition is too small to copy drivers, apk and file explorer compatible.
so my question : is there a way to make partition size larger to copy exFat driver and file explorer compatible on Fat partition ?

Thanks for answers !
Best regards

If you mean the first partition, you can freely reformat it to NTFS and resize it (as long as you keep the structure detailed in https://www.ventoy.net/en/doc_disk_layout.html or https://www.ventoy.net/en/doc_disk_layout_gpt.html).

The second partition can't really be touched (at least starting with v1.0.28) or else Ventoy will fail to boot with an unsupported error message.

The FAT partition (partition 2 with label VTOYEFI) is 32MB size and can NOT be changed.
You can reserver some space and create partition 3/partition 4 with the size you want.

I'm using Ventoy for Android, to create a bootable win10 usb to recover the system.

The 1st partition ventoy creates is about 500mb, which leads to "no enough space" when I pickup win10 iso.

How to set the the size of the 1st partition from Ventoy?

I have no access to a laptop running windows. But I have Ubuntu 22.04 live usb, which  I couldn't resize the 1st partition from it via Disks or gPart.

Thanks in advance

Ventoy uses the whole size of the USB drive
Partition 1: (Maximum size - 32MB) exFAT
Partition 2: 32MB FAT

So you shoule be able to see two partitions if using DISKPART - LIST PART (under Windows) or fdisk -l (under Linux).

Without telling us more details about the USB drives you are using and providing the ventoy.log file which is generated when you make a Ventoy USB drive, we cannot help you.
